Sumthin' Pumpkin #1: Pumpkin Ice Cream Chocolate Pie

Confession: I made this pie in September, because I couldn't wait for "Sumthin' Pumpkin Month." It's still really good.

Pumpkin Ice Cream Chocolate Pie

Step 1: melt chocolate bark and coat the bottom of a premade chocolate pie crust (I guess you could make it yourself if you wanted) This is important, because it keeps the crust from getting soggy.

Step 2: mix 1 cup of pumpkin with a quart of vanilla ice cream (I made my own ice cream with fat-free half-and-half, but that's a little excessive). Add 1/4 cup brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice to taste (I like it spicy!). Freeze.

Step 3: coat with Cool Whip, freeze and drizzle with more chocolate.

When you serve this, make sure to get it out around 20 minutes before serving so the ice cream isn't too hard. This is so good for a party or event when you can prepare it ahead in several steps in the days before.
